I am using ROS2 Foxy on the ubuntu20 system. when I launch rviz2 it crashes with the below error message.

[rviz2-1] 1650910831.701056240 [rviz2] [ERROR] InternalErrorException: Vertex Buffer: Out of memory in GLHardwareVertexBuffer::lock at /tmp/binarydeb/ros-foxy-rviz-ogre-vendor-8.2.6/obj-x86_64-linux-gnu/ogre-v1.12.1-prefix/src/ogre-v1.12.1/RenderSystems/GL/src/OgreGLHardwareVertexBuffer.cpp (line 125)

Ogre errors are related to your graphics driver/capabilities if I'm not mistaken.

Out of memory in GLHardwareVertexBuffer

That makes me curious what kind of system you're running it on. I remember having issues with RViz2 (in Nav2 specifically) on my laptop if I also had Gazebo running. Eventually I got it working by disabling some of the visual stuff in RViz2 (think global/local costmaps, amcl cloud, sensor pointclouds). I basically overloaded my graphics card.

It would also be helpful to know what you're running besides RViz (Gazebo, openCV?) and what you've opened in RViz. Does it already crash when RViz is empty (by just running rviz2 from the command line), or is it when running a specific RViz configuration?

The error is an "Out of memory" error. The GTX 1050 mobile has 2GB DDR5. Have you simply opened so much that your 2GB is full? Because that's my guess.

I am using a zed2i camera which is running a bunch of nodes in which person detection is also one. This didn't happen initially when I ran it but after the next day or 2, I started seeing this issue.
